Festival Review: Peats Ridge Festival Day 2 - Glenworth Valley (30.12.12)

The day starts hard and fast, as the sun bears down on tents and the music kicks off with Daily Meds onstage at The Lyrebird, for a wicked 10:30am set. Honest, hung over and bleary eyed, both the band and the crowd work themselves up for a killer show and dance. The band work their way through the hits from their debut album Happy Daze, with help from an awesome back-up break dancer and Big Village guests.

What do you expect from playing Peats Ridge?

Well we’ve played there before quite a few years ago, we had a great time there. I think since then the festival has become a lot more popular which is great.
